Exciting, atmospheric, romantic and stylish, The Wolf Princess marks a welcome return to the comfort of traditional storytelling. Steeped in history and nostalgia, but delicious in its telling, The Wolf Princess is a celebration of innocence, friendship and resourcefulness. For fans of C S Lewis, Eva Ibbotson and Cornelia Funke, The Wolf Princess is both a nostalgic fairy tale and a contemporary adventure about a girl who discovers the past is not quite as ordinary as she thought.

A Piece of Passion from the Publisher, Barry Cunningham:
I was all alone in Scotland: the snow was falling, the fire crackled in the grate, and I turned the first page of The Wolf Princess. After midnight I looked up again, a small tear in my eye, and my heart bursting with that special feeling that you only get when a book is absolutely fantastic! I started it again.

This story is exciting, heart-warming and totally satisfying. Curl up with Cathryn, jump on that unexpected train and steam through the snow - wolves and a magical palace await you.

Synopsis

The Wolf Princess by Cathryn Constable

Alone in the world, Sophie dreams of being someone special, but she could never have imagined this. On a school trip to Russia, Sophie and her two friends find themselves on the wrong train. They are rescued by the beautiful Princess Anna Volkonskaya, who takes them to her winter palace and mesmerises them with stories of lost diamonds and a tragic past. But as night falls and wolves prowl, Sophie discovers more than dreams in the crumbling palace of secrets.
